Every notebook or desktop or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software that communicates with the computer hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, and any apps that are present on your system. Any program input through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is processed by sending an Application Program Interface (API) request to the Operating System. On a web server, each application runs within the parameters defined by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This goes for both standard website scripts and server-side software such as a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, so you will be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

Our virtual private server solutions include three Linux distributions that you may choose from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being totally free, the OSs are really stable and secure and the main reason to offer you all three of them is to ensure that you'll be able to run each application that you'd like, because different pieces of software could have different requirements about the environment they can be used on. Each one of the three OSs is supported by a huge community of web developers who have produced a large number of software packages which you can install and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System which you select, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to manage your website hosting content. Needless to say, in case you decide that you need some other OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the Operating System for maximum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you decide to get one of our dedicated servers, you will find three Operating Systems on the registration page since we want to give you a wider choice for the system environment on your server as different applications may have specific requirements. CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian feature different modules developed by their huge support communities, so you can select any of these OSs and enjoy a stable and secure web hosting service. Based on your decision, you will also have different Control Panels to choose from. Needless to say, we can always change the Operating System in case the one you have selected at first doesn't meet the requirements of the software which you would like to run. We can also update the OS on a regular basis to keep it as risk-free as possible using our Managed Services upgrade package.
